Rosette Nebula (The bit nobody normally does) in colour!!

Recommended Posts

Following on from my mono image, here is the colour version. It was nice and clear all night and the moon wasn't above the horizon until fairly late which allowed me to capture another 6.25 hours in OIII to add to the earlier Ha, meaning this one adds up to 12.5 hours in 900 sec subs.

:)

John,

Very natural looking image! Impressive!

Very refreshing to see a narrowband colour image not looking overpushed.

That blows me away, the clarity is stunning across the whole image. Fantastic job.

That's a lovely image with a great 3D feel. Your processing and those Astrodon's have done a great job.

Superb John

and it's come out even better. Glad you managed to sneak that OIII in quicker than expected...

Oh those clear skies are taunting me tonight but too risky to open the roof in these winds!

You chose a very good area to frame, it has come out brilliantly.

The subtle colour really made me look twice, great shot.
